Really Wild Bushcraft was founded by Steven Shove in January 2010 to deliver outdoor learning experiences to families and organisations alike. Since then, hundreds of families have either attended together or signed up their children on our Really Wild Bushcraft courses at Wowo.

Steve and his team are qualified bushcraft and survival instructors. Each is a qualified expedition leader, CRB checked and trained in remote first aid and food hygiene as well. Instruction is safe, fun and delivered in an exciting and engaging way so whatever your age, you’ll get a great deal from our courses. Nature and adventure are the team’s passions.

We hope you’ll live your own adventure and join our scheduled sessions at Wowo. Please also visit or call 07771520515 for private individual, group or corporate bookings.

An exciting journey of activities, challenges and stories from throughout the ages from the Stone age to the Saxons, Vikings and the Romans.

Head back to 100,000 years BC and step into the forests where our ancestors first learned to spot and use the resources around them.

Packed full of bush craft lessons and games this workshop is wonderful for all the family!

A fun-filled session and a great opportunity to learn how to make shelters that will keep you safe and comfortable in the woods. Participants will experiment with natural and sometimes man-made materials to make the best camps they can.

Learn the answers to key questions such as; Do I even need a shelter? Where do I put it? What can I make it from? What design should I use? What if I’m just too tired? What if I have no string? And how should I do so safely? Whether you are a child or a grown up, this session is one that will leave you with skills you can use forever. And it’s a great one to share with your child!
